85-305 smog-A/C motor. I'm trying to replace the A/C belt that wasn't on the car when I got it. I removed the smog pump (belt was missing to it too)
So I have one belt that goes from crank to water pump to power steering, I have another one that goes from crank to water pump to alt. but that leaves my A/C belt just running off power steering pump? That don't seem right? I thought A/C always come offf the crank????:dontknow:
Anybody?

my 82...

3 pulleys on crank
2 large sized pulleys on WP, 1 much smaller pulley outer most - to AIR pump
2 pulley on PS

inboard: Crank to PS only
center: Crank, WP, PS and A/C
outer: Crank, WP, ALT

then the smaller WP most outer pulley went to air pump

But we both know who owned this before me, so who knows :poke:

Everyones right. Somebody had switched some belts out the wrong way. But while I was working on it in my driveway some idiot did this to my new Mustang!!!!:let_it_all_out:

No insurance!! Police go called and much to my disapointment I don't have the pics. of his getting towed off to impound!!!
At least I was home and caught him.
He had a BIG Greasy pi--ed off gear head getting right in his face!!!!
Now I have a not so happy wife!!! I think I lose!!:dontknow:

I once had a 1984 Firebird. It seemed to attract idiots, too, and by the time I traded it (in just over 2 years), it had a little ding on every fender.
